Re: Ash vs Evil Dead (new tv series)

I remember Bruce confirming the show on Twitter earlier this year, but he made it sound a little more like a cameo.

I wouldn't have thought he would want to come back to do that much, given his constant remarks about being too old or disinterested in doing so.

A 2015 miniseries, I don't know, it can't really capture the camp 80's/90's b-movie feel. Kind of the point of the reboot.

All 3 main games had a different take on the events after AoD, wonder if they'll work any of the storylines into it lol.

Just hope this isn't a setup for their rumoured "combined finale" movie.

I'm excited for it. Even though he's older, Bruce Campbell is as awesome as ever, and he's not that old. There are older actors doing action filled stuff in movies, and I think this has the potential to be great.

I think Starz is a fantastic home for this project as much as I'm surprised this is in the works. The producers have connection with the material and their show Spartacus seems like a good start for a show like this. Starz lets them have freedom of content and a willingness to embrace B-movie trashiness that might not fly as well on HBO or Showtime.

I'm really excited about this but I'm also really worried that this is a sustainable premise for a tv series. I hope they figure it out.

Grab a cheap PS2 and a copy of "Fistfull of Boomstick" and "Regeneration". Or failing that, there are two pretty fun ED games on iOS. Lots of deadite shooting antics.



That said, if they really go all out on this project, make it feel like the movies, it could be pretty awesome.

Re: Ash vs Evil Dead (new tv series)

Couldn't help but be initially disappointed it would be a TV series (and only a 30 minute one at that), but given that it's on cable and being directed by Raimi with Bruce as Ash, I can still see it working really well and retaining a lot of what made the movies so awesome.

And Evil Dead also seems like a perfect fit for the more serialized kind of story that you can tell on cable, as we follow Ash on one long, crazy adventure over the course of the season (which is what I really hope they're planning to do, instead of having it be just be a bunch of standalone episodes where he fights Deadites in one place or another).

Ultimately though, as long as we get to see Bruce with his Boomstick and a chainsaw on his arm again, I'll be happy.

Re: Ash vs Evil Dead (new tv series)

I wonder where it'll end up airing here in the UK. Another show to look forward to.

Bruce Campbell and Evil Dead on Starz? This will be totally psychotic. I'll be there.

I've actually got a copy of Fistfull of Boomstick for my Xbox. It's simple and great fun. I know Bruce Campbell said it was the closest we'd ever see to Evil Dead 4 back when it came out but I'm glad that turned out to be wrong.
